House Rules pips The Voice but Nine claims Sunday

Ratings: Masterchef is #1 in the Demos. John Safran doco ranks low for SBS.


Seven News and House Rules both won their slot last night but ultimately Seven wasn’t able to claim victory last night because Bones let down the schedule.

Nine saw The Voice and 60 Minutes run through until around 10:30pm meaning it held more people longer, but the consolation for TEN was that MasterChef beat them all in the Demos.

Nine network won with 29.2% then Seven 28.3%, TEN 20.6%, ABC 15.9% and SBS 6.0%.

Nine News was 1.23m for Nine followed by The Voice (1.01m) and 60 Minutes (721,000). See No Evil was 273,000.

MasterChef Australia was best for TEN on 978,000. Modern Family drew 562,000 / 423,000. TEN Eyewitness News was 384,000 and Movie Red 2 was 424,000.

ABC News (850,000), Grand Designs (758,000), Doctor Thorne (646,000), Death Comes to Pemberley (407,000) and Compass (243,000) comprised ABC’s night.

  1. I love Bones but the numbers just show that viewers aren’t always willing to follow a show across timeslots and shown on a delay (last nights originally aired 5/5 and 12/5 respectively). I personally am not fussed by slow tracking, but obviously there are individuals who are. In addition, I watch the majority of shows timeshifted – as do a number of others – so live figures don’t show the full picture.

    1. Timeslot changes and no catchup have not helped. Even when it airs on the same night there is no consistency. Last night double ep. Sunday before single ep. Sunday before that double ep. What hope do viewers have in following a show with so many changes?

      1. You aren’t supposed to. Bones is just a timeslot filler used to show ads for the upcoming Cannonball, Big Music Quiz & LOL series while looking like they care by showing new content
